Skip to comments.Scientists Find DNA Change Accounting for White Skin (White People "Greatest Cause of Strife"!)
Posted on 01/30/2011 5:47:11 PM PST by Williams
Scientists said yesterday that they have discovered a tiny genetic mutation that largely explains the first appearance of white skin in humans tens of thousands of years ago, a finding that helps solve one of biology's most enduring mysteries and illuminates one of humanity's greatest sources of strife.

But I thought EVERY characteristic trait was an exhibition of genetic mutation through evolution!!
So now the claim is that “non-whites” are the “real” and “original” ...shh, I’m afraid to say it... “Creation” and that whites are a mutation from evolution?
What a bunch of truly stupid people.
Scientists =Guessers, and many of them bad.
It's time to cut back on some of these grants for "scientists". They obviously have too much free time on their hands.
And the gene that mutated mongoloid peoples?
LMAO......and the cracker gene is a mutant.
I thought diversity was a strength.......
You mean I’m gonna stay this color?
Only a history illiterate could believe that conflicts between whites and non whites is “one of humanity’s greatest causes of strife”!
There have been unending wars among whites only, Asians only, and Africans only throughout history. Countless examples of wars between all races, including wars launched against whites by non-whites. To identify the creation of white people as one of the greatest sources of strife is maniacal racism.
It’s the fault of global warming and I want reparations.
The self loathing-enlightened liberal syndrome. They are holier than thou, more enlightened than thou, but they despise their on race and culture, which brought them security and prosperity.
And the WP even got a guy named “Weiss” to write this article. He’s probably ashamed of his name.
The self loathing-enlightened liberal syndrome. They are holier than thou, more enlightened than thou, but they despise their own race and culture, which brought them security and prosperity.
The Chinese are next of kin to the Europeans ~ the two separated a mere 35,000 years ago. Their genetic mechanism for light skin is different than the one used in white folk or, the other white people, the Neanderthals!
I haven't seen this much hand wringing and pearl clutching since Groucho Marx goosed Margaret Dumont
Sounds like something coming from those whacko followers of Farakhan. Whites as degenerate mutants and the root of evil...
I reject that premise entirely. There were multiple species of hominids. Why not multiple variations of early humans with varied pigmentation.
Prove it with real science...
"Greatest Cause of Strife"
They can kiss my white "mutant" ass.
So the washington compost is now planting the seed that white skin is a mutation.
Which color? Me, I’m plaid. I see people as plaid.
You see here the result of an education system that identifies white people as the source of all trouble in the world.
They never heard of the troubles between Japan-China-Korea-Vietnam. Missed the Moors invading Europe. Didn’t notice Africa as a place of constant war and strife.
These idiots actually think the emergence of white skin is what caused problems in the World! If only all people were non-white, I’m sure there would never have been any wars, empires, etc. /s
That pretty much settles it, when will the eradication of those trouble making white bastards begin? /s Just incredible.
What, are ya lookin’ for strife? I’ll give ya strife! ;-)
Okay - well how come there are black looking whites? Just 35,000 years ago? So how did the facial features come to be different?
I think I will apply to SSA and see what happens.
More garbage on White People...a race the world is continually working to destroy...it will NEVER happen...
If any of those liberals have a problem with having white skin, I suggest they remove it. Let’s see how that works out for them...
..since a good portion of the world advances and most all human freedom was perpetrated by mutant white people..
What’s the name of that mad scientist, who created the white devils in the Black Muslim belieft? Yaqub??? Well, Calypso Louie Farrakhan now has the evidence he needs and right from that bastion of white power, the Washington Post!!!
The story says the specific gene was found.
The evolutionary adaptation that produced reduced melanin to promote health in northern latitudes has long been known. The mutated gene causing that adaptation has now been specifically determined
The reactions to the article are far more amusing than the article itself.
I think it more likely, the “greatest source of strife” refers to strife related to “differences” in skin color, and does not target whites as the source of strife.
LOL (1) First, did you REALLY believe ANYONE in the Media or “Pop Science” would give Caucasians any kind of “evolutionary” benefit of the doubt? (2) In their way of thinking — remember, they’re DARWINIAN EVOLUTIONISTS — if Caucasians are the result of the most RECENT “mutation” to adapt, it logically follows that they are somehow “the fittest.” NOTE: I DIDN’T SAY THAT — DARWIN SAID THAT!!! I think it’s a heap a ——... (3) How arrogant does everyone (here or elsewhere) have to be to think THEIR race was created FIRST?! It’s far more likely that the first people were actually from Mesopotamia — and were olive skinned, perhaps Semitic.... Not white, not black. But NONE of us — NOR those scientists KNOW. That simple...
I kinda thought “fear of starvation” was the biggest cause of strife followed by “don’t steal my woman”.
Us mutants should be eligible for some sort of gummint freebies, us bein’ ignerunt an all.
Certainly a case can be made that Western European civilization brought mankind’s greatest advances, but they would never say Hey, this is how we got all those great Europeans!
The science underlying the article is interesting, but for the reporter to make a racist, all encompassing and historically inacurrate statement is just incredible.
It has been known as a biological fact for about 30 years now that all humans are born genetically black, but some of us carry a recessive gene for dilution of melanin, resulting in a lighter skin coloring.
So what’s your problem, aside from being a little slow on the uptake?
Not much tolerance for us diverse mutant honkeys at the Post...
Besides, every thinking person knows that liberals/progressives/socialists/marxists are in the top two as causations of strife in the world.
The Washington Post launched a new online magazine Monday aimed at a black audience, featuring commentary from leading black writers, along with information on genealogy. Called "The Root," the website is the brain child of Post Chairman Donald Graham and Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.
At least one of those names should be familiar. Not surprised Gates is behind this kind of crap. People like him cause certain words to remain in the American lexicon.
Instead we are descended from the San People, and all the 13 different kinds of black folk are ALSO descended from the San People.
The San developed from earlier humans in SOUTHERN African ~ in the Temperate zone.
They were probably well on their way to trimming up to having light skin down there and then, when they moved North, those who got to Eurasia the first just kept right on changing. Those that stayed in Africa, were moving North into more Tropical climate zones and more direct Sunlight. They turned black!
Modern San have obviously mixed considerably with other African tribes ~ however, Nils Van Der Post and other researchers have hypothesized that the San cannot necessarily create fertile offspring with all other blacks ~ just with some!
There's a situation that involves enough Northern Europeans and the Sa'ami that is of enough concern that it's been studied ~ to little avail.
It's called Indeterminant Infertility. That's where you and somebody else get together and have chilluns. Let's say you have 8 kids. 4 of them will be infertile for no discernible reason. At the same time there are CERTAIN Sa'ami males with what appears to be a workaround for the problem ~ super sperm! The females with indeterminant infertility can sometimes hit if visited by such a man.
No one has studied the situation enough to pin everything down and these days the Sa'ami are sober and monogamous, so that just ruins everybody's research.
Interestingly enough a "related population" still live in the Orkneys, and Charles Darwin, who had a fair number of ancestors from there, married a first-cousin ~ four of their 8 offspring were infertile!
I suspect the San/Bantu breeding problems, to the degree they exist, have something to do with this other system. It's probably far more widespread than we imagine. So, not everything is onesy-twosy, sometimes it onesy-whole buncha' women, and nothing at alsy!
Every morning I wake up, I give thanks to god I’m a white man.
What is the diluting agent for melanin? I want to know what additional substance is inside me. I may withdraw a small portion and study it.
Maybe there's a market for it.
It is a pretty well established fact all people are born right-handed, but only the greatest of us can overcome it and thank God for the evolutionary mutation that made white people or we would still be swinging from the trees.
